who love us for who we are,
+ who shine just by being who they are.

as a tribute to each one..
as a shout-out to the beauty
that is in all of us:

some great news on the way...

listening to you

i pause + i weave my way into listening.
“I weave a silence on my lips
I weave a silence into my mind
I weave a silence within my heart ... “

susie lafond
I am a self taught mixed media artist and creativity has always been a vital part of my life. My primary focus has been the creation of hand bound journals which I sell on Etsy but I also love to work and create with paint as well as collage and fabric. I love to experiment and draw my inspiration from many sources. Nothing is off limits when it comes to my creative flow. My work has been featured in several books and publications. I’ve used and applied my artistic skills for the creation of stage props and sets for a local dance studio and offers me yet another outlet to keep my creative juices flowing. I live in Coon Rapids Minnesota with my very talented wood worker husband, 2 daughters and my office assistant and constant 4 legged companion pooch; Fibi.

since learning
that goldfish grow
in proportion to
the tanks
they are given.

*this second set of two is by the lovely kaye llewelyn:

"I love to listen to all my senses, telling me what they feel.

To lean in just a little more to honor what you say.
To get down low to meet up close some tiny little eyes.
And to feel the wind and hear the song of each unfolding day."

Hi I'm Kaye. I love to create art that reminds us of the beauty within us and all around
and to embolden ones who've lost their way when I Mentor, Coach and Teach.

i let love have its way with me

i let love have its way with me

i never know
what will come
when i let love
have its way with me
but i do know
how to open my hands
+ i do know
that i want to.
